Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for
Kansei Matsuno custom knives
Direct from the Maker from the Blade Show 2012
Kansei (pronounced Can-See) and I met through Shosui Takeda this year at the Blade Show, I was aware of his work but not until now did I have the chance to offer it on my website.
This is an immaculate Small Gentleman’s Friction Folder Liner Lock. Yep, a Friction Folder that locks open with the precision fit and finish that only a Master can offer.
The fossilized Mosaic Mastadon handles are very well matched, this is a unique material made from small pieces of 20,000 year old Mammoth Tusk surrounded by a clear hard Resin. All the different pieces have rich contrasting colors and the overall Mosaic pattern is very unique.
The polished exposed Pivot is a very artistic feature and allows the knife to blend between a classic style and innovative technology. Stainless liners are polished, the handle is just large enough for a Three Finger grip.
The Satin Finished Spearpoint blade is Razor Sharp, it floats open but still has an excellent detent, the lock engages with a gentle sound and there is absolutely no play anywhere in the knife.
If you long for a small precision folder for your desk or dress pants then this is the blade for you.
Kansei also provides a matching Leather Pouch sheath for carrying the knife in your pocket.
